Thorpe Hall Hospice appeal

Thorpe Hall Hospice appeal

Sue Ryder - Thorpe Hall Hospice in Peterborough has been doing incredible work for over 20 years, in a building that is well over 300 years old.

It needs £6m to create a purpose built hospice for our county - and we want to help them do it. BBC Radio Cambridgeshire is proud to join the appeal, and with your support we can help it reach its target.

It wants to build a new hospice for Cambridgeshire - let's 'raise the roof' and help make it happen. This will create an invaluable space for families who need dignity, privacy and the best support available during some of the hardest times of their lives. 

We will be supporting Thorpe Hall in a number of fund-raising events throughout the year: from a balmy summer evening barbeque packed full of entertainment hosted by BBC Radio Cambridgeshire presenters with food, gardening events and some of the best bands in the county; to a huge charity football match with some local celebs playing the game and a Starlight Hike at Newmarket Racecourse, to name but a few.

To talk to someone and find out more call Thorpe Hall: 01733 593600.

To find out more or to get involved go to the Thorpe Hall Hospice website.

Paul Stainton biography

Paul was born in Goole in Yorkshire - the furthest inland port in Great Britain.

He took charge of sport at BBC Radio Cambridgeshire in the early 90s and was responsible for bringing football commentary to the airwaves of the county.

Paul then moved to the big smoke with BBC Radio Five Live, as a producer/editor, before then becoming a reporter for BBC Television Sport News.

Despite travelling the world with the BBC, he never left the Peterborough area so it was inevitable he would come home to BBC Radio Cambridgeshire.

His perfect weekend would involve playing golf, going to a football match and watching films.
